I always trip on level groundTue, Sep 11, 2012 in Databases
On the lighter side: I’ve always had trouble with mysqldump’s expected syntax. You know, as the author of a book and all that, you might think I can get this to work. But pretty much every time I run this tool, it humiliates me. Witness:
$ mysqldump --host localhost --password secr3t --all-databases Usage: mysqldump [OPTIONS] database [tables] OR mysqldump [OPTIONS] --databases [OPTIONS] DB1 [DB2 DB3...] OR mysqldump [OPTIONS] --all-databases [OPTIONS] For more options, use mysqldump --help
